WINTER SOLSTICE
EVERYTHING YOU NEED
TO KNOW ABOUT THE
SHORTEST DAY OF THE
YEAR
The December solstice happens at the same
moment for every one of us, all over the place
on Earth. This year the solstice happens on
Tuesday December 22nd at 04:49 GMT
(Universal time) with the sun ascending over
Stonehenge in Wiltshire at 08:04.
The winter solstice happens each year when
the Sun achieves its most southerly declination
of -23.5 degrees. As it were, the point at which
the North Pole is tilted uttermost 23.5 degrees
far from the Sun, conveying the least hours of
daylight of the year.
